Now when I try to print anything to both printers, the print job directs both of the print to only print on 1 of the printer. It looks like this will work, I was able to export but I’m not at the location of the problem pc right now. What it produces does not appear to be a driver however. It is a xxxx.printerExport file that I guess must be imported using what you directed above. If that importing is as easy as exporting, this will work. The best solution would be to somehow isolate only the printer driver I want.

Without the correct printer drivers, print jobs are likely to not work correctly if at all. For fully supported devices, the drivers will automatically recognize all the advanced printing features supported by the device and present them in the driver user interface. Printer profiles are pre-configured driver settings applied to the printer during the installation. Profiles are the color, black and white, duplex, etc., settings configured in the Printer Properties. This opens the old Printer management window, which shows every printer device you’ve installed separately. From here, you can rename them, delete them, change their preferences, or add more printers and they’ll all appear as separate devices.

Expect lower IT costs and more printer uptime with fast out-of-the-box installation and a simplified Windows graphical user interface.

Naturally, to set up wireless printing, you’ll need to have a wireless network in your home. However, most people with a broadband connection will already have a wireless router, as broadband suppliers usually include them as part of their start-up packs. You can also connect a printer to Wi-Fi via your device’s Wi-Fi Protected Setup mode. This method lets you connect to a wireless network even if you don’t know its name. Just make sure you have your wireless router handy to complete these steps.
